Abstract

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) took her cue from the scientific method. "Experiment escorts us last," she wrote. Just as her understanding of temporal and spatial change channeled geology, so her sense of the sublime consulted astronomy. Her grasp of the bald, cold truth of life's struggle out-Darwined Darwin. Thus she thrilled and shuddered in nature's creative and destructive presence.
